Matthew 20:25-28 English Standard Version (ESV)

25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,[a] 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave,[b] 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Mattityahu 20:25-28 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

25 But Moshiach, having summoned them, said, You have daas that those who have the rule over the Goyim domineer them like tyrants.

26 But it will not be thus among you. For whoever wishes to be gadol among you will become your mesharet (servant, minister).

27 And whoever wishes among you to be rishon (first) will be your eved (servant).

28 Just as the Ben HaAdam [Moshiach] did not come to be served, to be ministered to, but to serve, to minister, and to give his neshamah, his nefesh, as a kofer (ransom, pedut) LARABBIM (for the sake of many, for the Geulah Redemption of many, YESHAYAH 53:11).
